Because quarantine and worry has put an emphasis on comfort for all of us, most of my new clothing items this Fall are simple. This year, I have a good handle on how to organize my clothing with pieces I will want to mix and match.

So this is a breakdown of a few important purchases I have made to fill out my Fall closet. Since the weather remains mild here into November, I feel like long sleeves and a jacket are sufficient to keep myself comfortable. The outfits that I return to again and again are really quite basic to throw together.

If you are trying to purchase something trendy and stay on budget, you can't go wrong with cool bottoms. This way you can incorporate the season's latest styles without spending 100$+ on a jacket or dress. For example, I focused my spending on the leather trend. See some examples below!

Extra Long Faux Leather Leggings

ZARA $35

Tight Faux Leather Waistband Leggings H&M $35

Faux Leather Short with Silver Buckle

H&M 35$

Next, I tried some options in styles I've wanted to own, but was hesitant to try until I figured they are sticking around. During this crisis, I have actually been pretty happy to have a chance to broaden my shopping choices as I can get opinions from family and close friends without ever seeing strangers! The two options I picked are baggier pants. Of course, the boyfriend/mom jean is as comfy as it gets. I love this perfectly blue pair I discovered from Zara! They are a cotton blend that is a great quality just as you can get at Levi's or from Agolde. I really want to get them in black as well. I just adore the length and fit which looks good with sneakers, boots and pumps.

Mom Fit Jeans ZARA $40

I have also been wanting, for two years now, a pair of dressy flowy pants as a formal option. I have accumulated over the past couple of summers a couple of cropped blouses that aren't right to style with a skinny pant. I am super happy with the Mason Pant off of Reformation. The little pleats help cinch in the waist in an elegant way, and I'd add even more glam by looping a belt through.

I hope you have enjoyed this breakdown of some pant styles we are seeing a lot of this Autumn! I'm enjoying the beauty and wonderful weather we are getting, I just want it to continue on so I can wear these cute purchases as much as possible. And, for your reference, if you guys are interested in any of these pieces, I am 5'8" so some of these do look a little short in general on me! I will mainly wear boots with these looks to keep the line flowing.

My next post will be all about tops, and as winter approaches I will be looking at a couple of long coats. In late November, everybody's outfit is gonna be covered up so that is a time that I love to show off cool accessories. What are you going to be shopping for in the coming weeks? Do you like any of the brands I've mentioned?

Thanks for checking out my blog and especially to those of you who have recently subscribed by email! So looking forward to getting to know you guys.

Now's the time of year when we roll out our end of summer hauls, shop for the last cute tank tops on sale, and start to find new basics for fall. I've been shopping around every sale and checking out new stores that I've never tried before, which is how I came across this beautiful basic cream blouse online. This is my first time trying clothes from Princess Polly and I love the quality. Their summer styles and fabrics really are suited to hot days, well worth the spend.

I've fallen in love with this unique look, from the tie string sleeves to the cool vintage buttons. It's so chic and beautifully done. The fabric is airy and light yet not see-through, in fact I was able to keep on a black bra on for this photoshoot. I decided to wear it with my comfy bright blue shorts and canvas sneakers.

This top will transition well to a night look with a silk skirt and heels, or to the office under a gorgeous suit. Do you like wearing long-sleeves in the summer? I find it a lot comfier than a jacket + tank top for going into buildings. Just tuck it into your shorts on one side and your good to go with a cute outfit!

I recently understood that there is a gaping hole in the chasm of my closet, and it is: fancy summer tops. I've got plenty of lace, sparkle, and shine to wear all winter long. Yet in hot weather, my selection of beautiful tops for dinner dates and glamorous events is lacking. It's been a long time since I've wanted to make a great impression on anyone (my wedding, a couple of job interviews). June just marked our four-year anniversary! I want to make a bigger fashion statement in my life on the daily then I have in the past. I'm turning 23 this week and it's a cool marker for me, want to take bigger strides toward my goals now.

I was searching for something untraditional and dynamic, very dressed up. I figured a UK-based store would have more of what I'm looking for since all the fashion bloggers that have any drama in their wardrobes seem to be from there. Riverisland hit it out of the park! Their prices are right on, and so is their quality. I love the attention to detail in this ruffled black shirt. I purchased two other "dressed up" shirts from their collection and they all fit like a glove. The sparkly ring adds some beauty in addition to the puffy sleeves, and I like the little bit of cleavage it allows with a deep v-neck.

I paired this outfit with trendy lace-up sandals and patterned tribal shorts from H&M. Blue, black, and white keep it classy. I added a lovely black bag while matching metals and held the chain in my hand to balance an accessory off with that belt buckle. Keep checking back to see me style the other two tops I purchased!
